First Bookworks 14 Walk-Through Opens Our Eyes

The First Bookworks 14 Artist Walk-Through on Sunday, June 23, brought a group of fifteen interested book lovers to the Main Library. Seven exhibitors each spoke about the work they had contributed: the inspiration behind the work, the process of creating it, the materials and techniques they used. Hearing those back stories gave us a glimpse into each artist's creative journey, and every one of the pieces took on much more meaning.

 The second (and last) Walk-Through will be held Sunday, August 11, at 2:00 p.m. in the Atrium of the Main Library, 800 Vine Street. Even if you've seen the exhibit, you won't want to miss the opportunity to hear from some of the wonderfully creative artists in this year's show.

NOTE: At the request of the Public Library, the exhibition dates have been extended, and Bookworks will be on display until September 1.

Thanks to Janice K. for the report.
